SPRINGFIELD, MA (WFSB) -A mother in Springfield is being criticized after what she did during an attempted robbery.
Surveillance video captured her running from a robber and leaving her 4-year-old daughter behind.
Springfield police said the man walked up to the mother and her daughter with a knife and demanded the woman's purse.
The woman then ran away, and the robber then tried to grab the little girl.
She escaped and wasn't hurt.
The mother was treated for a stab wound and police are still searching for the robber.
Wow not sure what to say about this..i have never been in a situation like this. But shouldnt parental instinct be to grab the daughter and run or at least stand and fight for her? Seems to me like rational went out the window for her and fear took hold, i mean what rational person would leave their 4 year old in the hands of a robber??
